A Blast from the Past
Mr. Hottenstein's class from Jamison Elementary needs our support
We did it again! Another year…another trees rock video…another top 10 trip to the finals! Jamison Elementary is lucky enough to be in the top ten finalists for a video contest put on by Scotties Tissues. The video is about the benefit of trees. The winning school pulls in ten thousand dollars! You win by getting the most votes…so I’m asking everyone to not only vote, but tell everyone you know to vote and then tell everyone they know to vote. We’re hoping for a social media blitz!
You will need to enter some information the first time you vote. After that, you should be able to simply go online and vote once a day. You want to vote for Jamison Elementary School. Please spread the word and the link to vote. Remember that you can vote one time each day throughout the entire length of the contest. The contest runs from January 11th through February 7th. Click Here to Rock the vote!

CB partners with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365
